I recently purchased a portable projector which allows me to hook my iphone up to it and watch movies through the projector on the wall. For some reason when I go to watch a movie it tells me "I do not have permission to watch the movie on this device" it only says this when I have the phone hooked up to the projector via lightning/VGA adapter.

This is a weird problem I know, wanted to see if anyone had experienced a similar issue.

Welcome to the DRM generation (digital rights management) or in this case HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection). Everyone that provides commercial HD movies/TV shows must adhere to this. Each device in the chain must be HDCP compliant. VGA and DVI are not. You'll need to use HDMI or displayport. You might be able to play the SD version via VGA - not sure - been a long time since I've tried playing the SD version of anything available in HD.
